Now that it is a full year later I can honestly say that I need to try again.
I did okay when it comes to figuring out a work/life balance. I hired two new people for my team at work, which helped me not be quite so crazy. Of course, I also started a master’s program, so that certainly didn’t make me any less busy. The eating healthy and working out thing… um, that didn’t go so well.
So for 2017 I’m going to call a do-over and make Balance my word again. Because I still need some balance in my life.
Also, since I’m a girl who likes checking things off my ‘to do’ list, I decided to pick a few goals that are attainable:
Goal #1: Get a full physical
I don’t really like going to the doctor, so I don’t go. I mean, I go to my dermatologist and ladybits doctor once a year. And when I get sick I go by the walk-in clinic to get a quick check-up and prescriptions. I know I need to get a full physical to make sure that everything is a-okay and since I’ll be turning 40 in September, I’m going to make this the year I finally do it.
Goal #2: Take 18 more credits for my Master’s Program
I started working towards my Master’s in Management with a specialization in Marketing and finished out 2016 by getting an A in my 6 credit Organizational Theory & Behavior course. I want to keep on track to graduate in 24 months, which means that I need to take 18 credits this year (6 in the spring, 6 in the summer, and 6 in the fall). Unfortunately, I also have to throw a couple 0 credit pre-requisites in there too… so 2017 is going to be quite busy.
Goal #3: Run 100 Miles
I like to run when it’s nice outside and actually enjoy the opportunity to get away and do 3 – 5 miles on a weekend run. One hundred miles sounds like a HUGE amount of mileage – and it really is for me – but I also feel like it’s a goal that I can totally accomplish if I put my mind to it. So, I might as well try!
So there you go. A word and three goals. That’s totally doable, right?!
How about you… do you have any goals/resolutions/words of the year for 2017?
